The Manufacture of Railway Locomotives and Rolling Stock: The railway locomotive and rolling stock manufacturing industry is part of the drive to revitalise the rail industry as a whole, and includes locomotive and rolling stock acquisition programmes by Transnet to the value of R51bn, by the Passenger Rail Association of South Africa (Prasa) valued at R123.5bn, and the proposed expansion programme of the Gautrain Management Agency estimated at R4.3bn.

Local Content Designation: The locomotive and rolling stock acquisition contracts have been awarded to consortiums and joint ventures consisting of global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), local OEMs and empowerment partners. Successful OEMs are faced with the challenge of contractual obligations which include an average 65% local content, the establishment or expansion of local manufacturing facilities, the development of a core of skilled technical staff thereby ensuring technology transfer, and the creation of a sustainable value chain of local manufacturers and suppliers. Since July 2016 specific minimum threshold percentages for local production and content for the different classes of rail rolling stock have been adapted and range from 55% for diesel locomotives to 80% for Wagons.
